Playstation D-Pad


Hello! I’m new to Third Strike. I just picked up a PS3 and I’ve been playing with the Playstation controller. I’ve played SFII Turbo for the SNES for decades with the SNES controller and I think I’m having a little trouble adjusting to the PS controller’s D-pad. The main issue seems to be with quarter-circles, it feels like I have to input down, right more so than down, down-right, right and it feels a little unnatural. I Googled the topic and no one seems to complain about this so I thought I’d check in here and see what others have to say. Thanks!


The Ps4 does have a bad d pad, at least for fighters. You have a few immediate options, you could get the hori fighting commander, or if your good with electronics get a Sega saturn pad and put a Ps4 pads board in, but this isn’t easy if you have never done it


IMO ps pads are terrible for 2D fighting games. They work for TEkken/SoulCal, but for anything requiring a lot of qcf/dp/hcb motions, they just kill your thumbs.
